The Oscar-nominated shorts don’t usually get the same shine as the big-name pictures, so Vimeo went ahead and put them all in one place. You can either rent them for a 72-hour period, or buy and stream anytime.
Animated shorts A Single Life, Me and My Moulton, The Bigger Picture, and The Dam Keeper are available to stream before Sunday’s awards, as are live-action films Aya, Boogaloo and Graham, Butter Lamp, Parvaneh, and The Phone Call.
Anything involving Sally Hawkins (Blue Jasmine, Vera Drake) is worth watching, and powerful short The Phone Call is no exception. As for animated films, Me and My Moulton is quite charming and a good weekend watch. The Dam Keeper is a dark story that stars a cute pig. (Another quality short, Disney’s Feast, is available on iTunes.)
Vimeo is also offering access to two films you can’t stream elsewhere: The Reaper (La Parka) and White Earth.
